'Height of hypocrisy'

On Jan. 7, The Bee published an article written by William J. Broad, David E. Sanger and Thom Shanker for the New York Times. In essence, the article informed me that the U.S. was going to opt for a new hybrid design for its new nuclear warheads. I sat back waiting for a howl of protest from our politicians and the public, but none came.

Why do we think we can develop new nuclear weapons while we are telling the Iranians and the North Koreans they cannot? This seems to me to be the height of hypocrisy. No wonder our reputation has gone down the tubes. We Americans may not be paying attention, but the rest of the world is. Wake up, folks!
